Live the life of Riley in south Tipperary
High Park House, set on 103ac of prime land, is sure to attract significant interest at €1.5m
Once upon a time, there was little difference between the life of Riley and the life of a country vicar.
Most certainly, the vicars that found themselves ensconced in High Park House at Cappawhite, south Tipperary, had a lot to be pleased about.
This attractive property, set in mature grounds and supported by 103ac of good land, is dedicated to some of the finer things in life.
The holding has been brought to the market by selling agents Savills, who are guiding the private treaty sale at €1.5m.
Located 13km from Tipperary town, 23km from Cashel and 35.5km from Limerick city, the house was built as a vicarage for the Reverend John Hunt of Cashel around 1724, and remained in the Vere Hunt family until 1918.
The accommodation consists of between six and eight bedrooms, depending on configuration, a large porch, living room, sitting room, music room, billiards room, kitchen, pantry, three bathrooms, utility room and a large staircase hall.
There are also servants' quarters, which are in need of refurbishment.
The working farm is based on 103ac of high quality, permanent pasture. It is set out in large divisions, with excellent road frontage running into Cappawhite village.
